University of Washington Bothell Achieves Greater Budget Transparency with eThority

eThority Release

University?s Finance Department Gains New Insight and Automation with BI Solution

Boston, MA, July 27, 2009 – eThority, a company delivering a powerful business intelligence platform with a user-obvious interface, announced today that the [University of Washington Bothell's][1] Office of Administration and Planning is using eThority Enterprise Edition to increase transparency in their budgeting process. As reporting requirements have grown with economic uncertainty, eThority has helped keep UW Bothell's faculty, staff, and students informed with the most current information about where their funds are going.

"With eThority we have been able to keep our stakeholders well-informed and provide widespread insight into how money is being used at a very detailed level. This is especially important in a tough budget year," said Marilyn Cox, Vice Chancellor for Administration and Planning at UW Bothell. The process of generating reports is largely being automated by eThority Enterprise's auto-distribute functionality, and is used to share reports with stakeholders campus-wide, securely. Auto-distribute allows users to send reports out at regularly scheduled intervals so that the most current, up-to-date information arrives in necessary users' inboxes.

As reports are sent, security filters are applied to the data, so recipients only see information that they are authorized to view. This enables greater budget awareness across campus and also eliminates the paper that would be used to deliver these reports in hard copy form. "We're proud that a progressive university like UW Bothell is using eThority Enterprise to gain clarity in their budgeting and reporting process during these challenging times," said Mike Psenka, eThority's President and CEO.
